Many of those already mentioned - rather watch a good classic than most new ones.

 

Is Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid considered a classic by now?

 

Also:

 

12 Angry Men

How the West Was Won

Re: Favorite Classic Movies❓

There are far too many to list and quite a few were from the fifties.  However, any movie with Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck , Bogart, are favorites.  I love all the Universal Horrors, the Hitchcock movies, Spiral Staircase, Yankee Doodle Dandy.  I could go on but as I said many favorites were from the fifties on.

Re: Favorite Classic Movies❓

This is hard - I don't really think I have a FAVORITE movie, classic or otherwise.  If I HAD to pick something classic, I would say:

 

Now, Voyager

 

Sunset Boulevard

 

Casablanca

 

I also really love Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers 30's musicals (used to be on every New Years Eve)

 

There's probably so many more, but these are the ones that immediately come to mind.
